Scattered all over the mountainous region of northern Iraq, ancient Mesopotamian rock art is lately being carefully investigated by researchers from Heidelberg University, Germany, under the direction of Prof. Dr. Peter A. Miglus. In 2016, the Rock Art in Iraqi Kurdistan Project applied new methods to document the rock-hewn tombs there and the reliefs of ancient kings. The Rock Art Project film tells the story of how researchers used drones and photogrammetry to create digital copies of endangered rock art, and, in that process, to demonstrate the many advantages of digital archaeology.
